Invitation to participate in the New Zealanders and the Arts and Ngā Toi survey


Tēnā koe,

Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa is doing an online survey about what New Zealanders think of the arts and ngā toi (meaning Māori arts), how they participate in the arts and ngā toi, and how it affects them.

The arts and ngā toi includes crafts and objects, dance, literature, music, theatre, visual arts (like painting, drawing, and photography), ngā toi Māori (Māori arts, like weaving and carving), and Pacific arts.

Who is running the survey?

The survey is being run by Kantar Public, an independent research agency. We want Deaf and disabled people, tāngata whaikaha (meaning people who are disabled) and tāngata turi (meaning people who are Deaf or hearing impaired), to have the chance to take part in the survey.

So we asked Deaf and disabled people’s organisations to share the survey with people they know.

Who can take part in the survey?

Anyone can take part – both people who like the arts and people who don’t.

Taking part in the survey is voluntary – this means you should only take part if you want to.

Your answers to the survey are confidential. If you do the survey, we will not know your name or email address. Your name will not be used in the survey findings report.

How does someone participate in the survey?

We recommend completing the survey on a laptop or desktop computer. The survey closes at 4pm on Friday 8th December 2023.
